Hello. I have no training or certifications, but I am experienced in senior care. I worked for Papa for 6 months before the pandemic. Papa is a company/program collaboratively working with Humana to help assist seniors with light housekeeping/choir work. Although we worked with Humana and with seniors, certification was not required as I did not administer any medications, I did not help the senior with personal hygiene care (bathing), or did anything that would require certifications. I simply helped with housekeeping, technology, and companionship.
During the pandemic, we were laid off from the Papa program as we could no longer enter senior homes. As of now, we can only call in and check on seniors. I don't make enough making house calls only. I am seeking meaningful employment. After working with seniors for 6 months, I know it is meaningful employment. Seniors don't only need help, they need love and companionship.
